Stanislas Guerini, the boss of La République en Marche which will become Renaissance, set Friday for the legislative elections “the fine objective” of 340 deputies for a new presidential majority “as broad and solid” as that of the previous five-year term.

“The parliamentary majority, at the end of this five-year term, is 340 deputies when we add up the different groups that make it up, I think it’s a good goal”, explained on RTL the deputy from Paris.

“If we manage to maintain a majority as large and as solid as the one we had in the previous five-year term, then I believe that we will have done the job,” he added.

In the National Assembly, which has 577 deputies, it takes 289 to reach an absolute majority.

During a press conference on Thursday, former Prime Minister Édouard Philippe (Horizons), President of the National Assembly Richard Ferrand (LREM) and former Minister François Bayrou (MoDem) announced a confederation called “Together! ” bringing together these three parties of the presidential majority for the legislative elections of 12 and 19 June.

The general delegate of LREM announced during this same press conference that the party of President Emmanuel Macron is changing its name and becoming Renaissance.

“There are people who today want to join the President of the Republic because they think that the project he has for the country is the right project, but they are not always comfortable join either La République en Marche or Horizons or the MoDem and they want a space that is even more open, so it is this political party that we want to create, Renaissance”, explained Stanislas Guerini on Friday to justify this “refoundation “.

In particular, the delegate general extended his hand to the “social democrats” disappointed by a “Socialist Party which has simply abandoned the ambition of being a party of government, which has denied its convictions for some constituencies” after its electoral agreement with LFI ratified by its national council.

“We continue to expand” and “we will have this large ensemble which allows us to welcome all those who want to be part of the presidential majority”, rejoiced on Cnews the LREM deputy from Yvelines Aurore Bergé.

“I believe that, out of consistency, the French will want to give a majority to the President of the Republic, I believe that we have challenges that are far too great to take the risk of instability,” she added.

“There are people who are trying to replay the presidential match. The winner is Emmanuel Macron, not Jean Luc Mélenchon and his friends”, denounced on Europe 1 the Minister MoDem Marc Fesneau.
